Kevin Smith Voiced a Stormtrooper in ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’

While it’s widely known by now that Daniel Craig and Simon Pegg appeared in “Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” even if we never saw their faces, there were plenty of other recognizable names who were heard in the blockbuster but never seen. Take Kevin Smith, for instance.

On StarWars.com, supervising sound editor Matthew Wood reveals that the filmmaker provides the voice of the Stormtrooper who yells “We have incoming at 28.6! Move!” during the attack on Maz Kanata’s castle.

He was joined by a long list of voice actors, many of whom are franchise veterans, including Sam Witwer (“Star Wars: The Clone Wars,” “Star Wars Battlefront”), Matt Lanter (“The Clone Wars”), Fred Tatasciore (“The Clone Wars”), Dee Bradley Baker (“The Clone Wars,” “Star Wars Rebels”) and Catherine Taber (“The Clone Wars”).

Wood, who also contributed his own voice talents, offers a list of the actors, and their dialogue, at StarWars.com — although he notes there are “also a couple of actor cameos in there that shall remain nameless (for now).”
